1988: TOM GLOVER CHAMBERSBURG COLUMN
Lawson Tattler is a figment of my imagination. I use this literary mode quite often in writing my history columns. Even as Lawson Tatler is a fictional entity, be assured that the retrospectives of Mr. Morgan are just as reported in the press of yesteryear. This interview type article makes history come alive, especially to those who find the subject boring. As you read the above reminiscences of Mr. John Morgan, rural Chambersburg comes into clear focus. A bit later in that era, the population increased as immigrants from England and Germany began to settle in the area, followed by the Italians.
